It’s great to know that you’re thinking about coming to study for your degree with us in September. Here’s some helpful information about your housing options, so please get in touch with us if you have any questions.
We still have some rooms available in our University Managed Housing (on campus and off campus within Winchester). Please feel free to call our Housing Team on 01962 827533 to find out what’s available and our friendly, knowledgeable team will talk you through what to do next.
While we cannot guarantee you accommodation in University Managed Housing, we will do all we can to help you find a room. We know this can be a stressful time, so if University Managed Housing is fully booked we will add you to our waiting list and may be able to offer you temporary hotel accommodation in Winchester while we help you find somewhere to live. In this instance you would be placed on a waiting list until a permanent space becomes available, which we would work hard to provide as soon as possible.
Private rented accommodation
Winchester is a great city to be in and many of our students choose to live off campus in private rented accommodation. To help you find somewhere to live the Housing Team will be on hand at our August Advice Day
on 19 and 22 August. They’ll be able to offer all the advice and information you’ll need to conduct a successful house hunt!
You can also call our Housing Team on 01962 827533 and we’ll be able to help you find out more about private rented accommodation. Our dedicated team of advisors are in touch with landlords and letting agents and can help support you in finding accommodation from the current options available in the private sector. If they can’t answer any question you may have straightaway, they’ll know someone who can!
If you live within a commutable distance from the University you may decide to continue to live at home. The Student Union hosts the Commuter Society which holds meetings and social events for members and friends. The University also has a dedicated Commuters Lounge on campus where students who travel in to study can meet, mix, work, and socialise together.
